Discover the Area. Discover the Artists.
Join us for the Thirteenth Annual Driftless Area Art Festival and experience the beauty and artistry of the Driftless Area.
No matter what direction you are coming from, you’ll enjoy a scenic, meandering journey through wooded hills and deep valleys.
The Driftless Area, a unique region that escaped the glaciers of the Ice Age, is an inspirational setting to all manner of talented artists. Its hills and valleys are home to painters and potters, woodworkers and weavers, metal smiths and musicians, vintners and brewmasters.
To see, hear and taste the exceptional variety of their creations, you usually have to visit studios and stores, cafes and concerts. But once a year, on the third weekend in September, these artists gather together in Crawford County, Wisconsin, at the Driftless Area Art Festival.
Enjoy a drive with exceptional scenery. Spend a few hours strolling through the exhibits. Taste some local fare and sip some local wines. Listen to some great music. Take home some fine art and fine memories.
